SERVINGS: 4

Ingredients

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 pound ground beef chuck

1 large white onion, minced

Kosher salt

1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder

1 10 -ounce can Mexican-style diced tomatoes with green chiles

1 15 -ounce can pinto beans, drained

1 medium zucchini or yellow squash, diced

2 cups coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage

Juice of 1 lime, plus lime wedges for serving

Freshly ground pepper

8 tostadas (flat crisp tortillas) or taco shells

1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (about 4 ounces)

Directions

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef, half of the minced onion, 1 teaspoon salt and the chipotle chile powder; cook, stirring and breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until the meat is browned and the onion is tender, about 7 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, beans and zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is just tender, about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss the coleslaw mix, lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl.

Divide the tostadas among plates and spoon the beef mixture on top. Top with the cheese, slaw and the remaining minced onion. Serve with lime wedges.
